Guidelines for Withdrawal of Articles

IJELLH is dedicated to maintaining the integrity and authenticity of research work for the entire academic community. While the journal values the permanence of published articles, there might be limited circumstances where a published article needs to be removed. This could happen in cases of defamation, infringement of legal rights, court orders, or when an article poses a significant health risk. In such cases, the metadata (i.e., title and author information) of the article will be retained, but the article's content will be replaced with a screen indicating its removal for legal or other unavoidable reasons.

Article Retraction: Infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent or fabricated use of data, major error (eg, miscalculation or experimental error) or the like similar incidences, the article may be retracted. Occasionally, a retraction will be used to correct significant errors in submission or publication. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper attribution to previous sources or disclosure to the editor, permission to republish, or justification (ie, cases of redundant publication)

The original article is retained unchanged except for a watermark which is included on each page of the article PDF indicating that it has been “retracted”.
